As much as I hate agreeing with a Falcon fan (Bucs baby) he's right. Sapp has been on the decline bad the last couple of years. I'm not suprised at all he isn't doing well.

Raiders don't really have the players for a 3-4 defense, yet they keep at it........

i still believe sapp is still way above an average lineman
but when yer team is currently 3-7 (tied for worst in league)
and yer not doing things like catching TD passes like last year, and performing funny dancing celebrations
yer not gonna be on sportscenter too often

EDIT: he did make sportscenter this season when he was getting in the face of his coach during a loss

Rule #1 if your team is winning and you are making the plays you can talk smack. Example T.O.

If your team sucks and you are not doing much "keep yo mouth shut"

I watched a small section of yesterdays Raiders v Chargers game and it was interesting to hear the TV guys gush over Sapp still. The one play that comes to mind, was when the Chargers O lineman had Sapp completely contained and was pushing him away to the left, although Breez then had to scramble towards him because of the opposite side pressure. Anyway, Breez gets the ball away, but the TV guys tells us all how it was all about Sapp.

In the Premiership thread, Pimpbot said, "A premiership thread with all American posters. How refreshing!"

Now here's an American football thread where the last two comments are from Brits! How refreshing!

Sports: The great uniter!

Now, which one of you guys wants to teach me about cricket?

He is getting old but he can still play to some degree. I know a lot of teams could use him but he is no longer the dominant lineman that he used to be. Plus he is a Raider and no one on that team is getting attention.

Actually, Heathen, my question was a bit tongue-in-cheek....but I will try to enlist your services to learn the game if they ever start putting matches on Fox Sport World or somewhere.

Sapp was overrated from the beginning. He had one big sack year, and that was it.......off to the races with all the "He's OH SO GREAT" comments. He's decent against the run, and is an average pass rusher.......and always has been. Following his 16.5 sack season of 2000, he's recorded 6, 7.5, 5, and 0.5 (as of this week) since that "breakout" year. Seems as though he had one great year, got the huge contract, and took a nap. The fact of the matter is that Sapp has been on the "decline" for quite some time now...
